|About a Boy|
When my client asked me to help with her 11 year old sons room I was ecstatic! The challenge was to create a room for a "tween"--nothing to young, but he is still a kid after all and we didn't want anything that would look like an adult man's room either. Most of the design geared around children is just too young looking for a 11 year old, especially when it comes to bedding and accessorizing. His one request: BLUE. Our solution was to have custom bedding made and mix patterns and textures to create a fun, slightly whimsical room that he will be able to grow into over the next few years as he transitions into high school.
Above are the main pieces in the room Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams bed, side tables and Jonathan Adler lamps and bench.
I LOVE this Allegra Hicks fabric, its going on the bench under the windows.
I can't wait to see this all come together..it is going to be really phenomenal!
